The Cancer Exercise Specialist® (CES) is a professional qualified to assess, design, and implement individual and group exercise programs for individuals diagnosed with cancer. The CES is skilled in evaluating health behaviors and risk factors, conducting comprehensive fitness assessments, writing appropriate exercise recommendations, and motivating individuals to modify negative health habits and maintain positive lifestyle behaviors for health promotion. The CES will have a complete understanding of the entire cancer process from diagnosis to treatment, recovery, prevention of lymphedema, and contraindications. The qualification process includes demonstrating competency through a comprehensive multiple-choice examination.
Course description - Health and fitness professionals will expand their knowledge base by learning all stages of cancer treatment, side-effects, and reconstructive procedures and how they impact exercise programming. No two clients will have the same exercise and physical activity recommendations; each person is unique given their many permutations and combinations of their own health challenges and pre-existing medical and orthopedic conditions.
Multiple choice examination – includes 125 multiple choice questions. Questions are drawn from the CES handbooks and lecture/video content. Upon passing the examination you will receive your results immediately and be able to print out your certificate of completion. A formal certificate will be emailed to you shortly thereafter.
